Sea of Thieves is back for more hijinks over the next few days.
Recently, Rare conducted a Sea of Thieves scale test to determine how servers responded during heavy player counts. While the first test was a success, there is still room for improvement and accommodating even more players.
Today, the developer announced that a second test would start on Friday February 23, 2018 at 7 AM EST and end on Sunday February 25 at 5 AM EST. The goal of this is to see how the latest multiplayer updates hold up and to hit a higher number of concurrent players than before. Gamers can participate in the scale test by downloading the beta build from the Microsoft Store and playing it over the weekend on Xbox One or Windows 10.
